Re: GG: On Fartein Valen

As a norwegian I have a fair knowlegde about Fartein Valen; indeed, i am related
to the guy far out, and have been at his house for several occations. (Played on
his piano on a concert last year, a mixed experience.) As for recordings i find
the Riefling reading very bad, u should hear him play e.g. Bach... A reading I
can recommend is that of Einar Røttingen, one of my professors at the
Griegacadamy in Bergen. I havnt listened to it a lot, but *anything* is better
than Rieflings!
